Is a 12 Yard Dumpster the Right Size for Your Job?

There are 4 primary factors you should consider when selecting the right dumpster size for your project. Read below to find out what these factors are.

  1. Type of Debris – When choosing the right dumpster size for your project, it’s important to ask yourself what kind of debris you are throwing away. Remember that a 12 yard container is our second smallest dumpster size. But don’t just base your evaluation of choosing a dumpster solely by its dimensions. A 12-yard dumpster container typically holds 12 cubic yards of material, equivalent to about 4 full pickup truck loads. It is both sturdy and compact. However, 12 yard dumpsters are only suitable for certain kinds of jobs like small deck demolitions and disposing of moderate roofing debris.
  2. Total Volume – Yards are used to represent dumpster sizes. One cubic yard is roughly equivalent to 5–6 13-gallon trash bags. To assist you in making a decision, we’ll go over the total volume and dimensions of each of our dumpsters.
  3. Budget – What is your project’s budget? This question is important when selecting the perfect size for your dumpster rental service. Our team will help you select a dumpster container that’s not only perfect for your job but also for your budget.
  4. Delivery Location – Dumpster rental sizes differ by service and by area. To check if a 12 yard dumpster rental is available in your location, check out our Service Areas.

How Should You Prepare for Dumpster Delivery?

Follow these 2 easy steps to help you prepare the drop-off location for dumpster delivery after you’ve rented your 12 yard dumpster.

  1. Leave Sufficient Space – The required space needs to be at least 60 feet long in order to accommodate a 12 yard dumpster rental. You should also move your vehicles to the street and open any entrance gates to your property before we arrive. We recommend avoiding locations near pedestrian walkways or automobile traffic.
  2. Ensure There is Vertical Clearance – There must be at least 23 feet of vertical clearance for our driver to lift your dumpster container and place it properly. We recommend choosing a level drop-off area without any debris and obstructions like low-hanging wires or branches.

How Should You Prepare for Dumpster Pickup?

Once you are done filling up your dumpster bin, you can schedule a dumpster pickup. Follow these 3 simple steps for your dumpster pickup preparation. 

  1. Distribute Your Debris Evenly – Make sure the debris in your dumpster is distributed properly and that nothing protrudes above the top.
  2. Remember the Weight Limit – Keep in mind the weight restrictions on your 12 yard dumpster. Be careful not to overload it. You’ll be charged extra fees if you put anything that isn’t allowed in the dumpster bin or if your weight limit has exceeded.
  3. Clear Out the Pickup Location – Remove any parked cars or anything that could obstruct access to pickup your dumpster.

How Much does it cost to Rent a 12 yard Dumpster?

All of our dumpster sizes from 10 to 45 yard cost the same amount.

The debris type, debris weight, dumpster size, rental duration and your location all play a part in the cost of dumpster rentals across the country. Here is how these 5 major factors impact a 12 yard dumpster cost.

  1. Type of Debris – Our drivers must transport construction materials, yard debris, and home junk to various processing facilities. You may pay more if you’re getting rid of hard-to-process items, like mattresses, depending on the city you’re in.
  2. Size of Dumpster – Your project and the debris you’re throwing out will determine the size of the dumpster container you require. In case you’ll be getting rid of more debris, a larger bin is needed and this increases the cost of your dumpster rental. Our 12 yard dumpster is our second smallest size and is perfect for small-scale projects.
  3. Duration of Rental – Your rental period affects the cost of renting a 12 yard dumpster. The price will increase if you need to keep your dumpster for an extended period of time.
  4. Location – Fuel prices, demand, and disposal fees differ from city to city.
  5. Weight of Debris – Disposal fees are charged based on the calculated weight of your debris at landfills. When you rent a 12 yard dumpster from us, we’ll give you a certain weight restriction, and you must keep within that limit to avoid additional fees. Not sure about your debris weight? Use our dumpster weight calculator below to get an estimated total weight of your debris.

The following additional costs are charged by the majority of dumpster rental companies.

  • Delivery Fee – The cost of transporting a roll off dumpster to the designated location.
  • Removal Fee – Charged for hauling away the dumpster from the location.
  • Special Items – Electronics and large household items are subject to a special item fee. The regulations on both local and state sites differ.
  • Additional Days – An additional day fee could range from $5 to $10 per day or much more.
  • Shorter Rental – In some cases, you can still be charged for a full one-week rental fee even if you don’t use the dumpster for a full week.
  • Overload Fee – There is a fee for each additional ton when a roll off dumpster exceeds its maximum weight capacity.
  • Overflow Fee – On open top dumpsters, this fee may apply to any debris that is higher than the Maximum Fill Line.
  • Taxes – You often have to pay both federal and state taxes when renting a dumpster.

NOTE: Costs associated with obtaining permits should also be considered. Contact your local city or county for more details, as this fee is not covered by the price of renting a dumpster.
